This week brings a few collaborations that make perfect sense (LA hatter Nick Fouquet and Birdwell Beach Britches, Stone Island and Supreme) and a couple that caught us by surprise (The Mark Hotel and Orlebar Brown, Woolrich and Aimé Leon Dore). Expected or not, the results are worth checking out—as are summer-weight sweaters from Inis Meáin and Ghiaia Cashmere, a genre-bending denim shirt from Drake’s and a fresh twist on the bit loafer by Hyusto. More this way…
Aimé Leon Dore x Woolrich Wading Jacket
It seems like everyone’s a fisherman these days—or more likely, dressing like one. For either route, consider adopting this cotton-blend wading jacket made by ALD and Woolrich, which sports practical features like a mesh-lined stowaway hem and twin patch pockets with snap-flap closures.
Gimaguas Check Print Cotton Bowling Shirt
Were we in a punny mood, we might ask you to “check out” this printed cotton shirt or suggest that it may “bowl you over.” But we’re not, so we’ll just say that this bowling shirt from Gimaguas with checks in two different scales is something we approve of.
Husbands Straight High Waisted Jean in Raw Selvedge Denim
We’ve been trying to crack what makes the Parisian label’s take on tailoring feel so fresh, and these high-waisted jeans feel like a key part of the puzzle. Wear them below summer-weight blazers and tucked-in crewneck tees.
Brunello Cucinelli Suede and Canvas Runner Trainers
Every runner has a different motivation. And for some, it will be that Brunello Cucinelli just entered the game with these technical canvas and suede trainers (which might just see more action in airport lounges than running trails).
There Was One Single-Breasted Cotton Blazer
If you’ve coveted anything from this list but somehow don’t own a great navy blazer, stop right here. And immediately consider this classic cotton iteration tailored in Italy for There Was One.
Stone Island x Supreme Shirt Jacket in Cotton Ripstop Ice Camouflage
The shirt jacket that sits at the center of the seventh Stone Island/Supreme collaboration is made from a thermo-chromatic cotton ripstop with heat-sensitive pigments. Translation: It’ll change from a solid to a camouflage based on temperature. Yup, pretty cool.
Ghiaia Cotton Raglan Crewneck
Ghiaia Cashmere doesn’t take the warmer months off. No, the Pasadena-based, made-in-Italy label transitions to lighter pieces like this raglan crewneck made from 100 percent cotton. A perfect complement to khakis and deck shoes on any evening that falls below 70.
Coach New York Disney Parks Slides
These leather slides look like they were nicked from a Disney World resort in 1985, but in fact are a recent collaboration between the entertainment giant and Coach. At any rate, they’re much easier to incorporate into your summer look than mouse ears.
Drake’s Victoria Denim Club Collar Shirt
In a high/low stroke of genius, Drake’s has fitted a rounded club collar to a workwear-style denim shirt complete with a flapped chest pocket. Wear it with a knit tie under a wool-silk-linen sport coat, or on its own with rolled sleeves and ecru denim.
Earl of East Shinrin-Yoku Air Freshener
Need to freshen up your car before that first summer road trip but don’t want it smelling like synthetic pine? Then consider this alternative from London perfumer Earl of East, which will leave your auto smelling like a Japanese forest thanks to its blend of cedarwood, oak moss and black pepper.
Inis Meáin Donegal Linen Sweater
Who says that Donegal sweaters are restricted to the cooler months? Certainly not Inis Meáin, which made this subtly flecked iteration from lightweight linen. Rolled edges add enough interest to allow it to be worn on its own with indigo-rinsed denim or even a pair of shorts.
Nick Fouquet x Birdwell Bucket Hat
Some collabs are a stretch, but the team-up between LA-based hatmaker (and surfer) Nick Fouquet and Birdwell Beach Britches feels like a lay-up. The result is this multi-panel bucket hat that blends Fouquet’s linen fabrics with Birdwell’s signature “Surfnyl” nylon.
Universal Works Pleated Track Pant
We submit these Universal Work track pants as the latest evidence that pleats are well and truly back. Welcome them as either your dressiest lounge pants or lounge-iest dress pants.
Hyusto Mick Embellished Leather Loafers
Bit loafers? Never heard of them. We’re just enthralled with this Italian-made shoe from Hyutso, which features a gold-tone chain across its vamp.
The Mark x Orlebar Bown Swimshorts
Lavish Manhattan hotel The Mark does not, in fact, have a swimming pool. But that hasn’t stopped it from producing these Orlebar Brown swim trunks marked by illustrator Jean-Philippe Delhomme’s impressions of the hotel’s well-heeled clientele.
